Gullen Range Wind Farm

Gullen Range Wind Farm is an operational wind farm in the Southern Tablelands of NSW, Australia. It is owned by New Gullen Range Wind Farm Pty Ltd (NGRWF).

The wind farm consists of 73 turbines and produces 165.5MW of renewable power in ideal wind conditions.

On an average day it produces enough energy to power in excess of 70,000 average homes.

By 2020, Gullen Range Wind Farm will have saved 2.7 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional power generation.

Stretching from north to south, the wind farm measures 22km, approximately centred on the locality of Bannister, 11km South of Crookwell and 32km north west of Goulburn.
